I <3 Cloisters

from Shiny Little Stitches
(6) Name: 'Knitting : I <3 Cloisters
I <3 Cloisters
I <3 Cloisters

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increasing
  • decreasing
  • Twisted Stitches
  • work in the round
  • w&t
  • Work lace patterns
  • reading charts
  • written instructions also provided for stitch pattern

Pattern Description:

This pretty toe up socks has a stitch pattern which incorporates twisted stitches and yarn over which look like cloisters with a little heart pattern created from the yarn overs at their peaks. I chose a grey yarn which reminded me of stone work and was in my stash, however any semi solid/ solid good 4ply sock yarn would look lovely in this pattern.

Although available in just one size, the stitch pattern is fairly stretchy and will easily fit a larger foot. This can also be achieved by using thicker yarn/bigger needles.

Skills needed: Following charted lace patterns although written instruction are also provided, working in the round, working twisted stitches, short row shaping using the wrap and turn (w&t) method.

Yarn requirements: Any 100g (459yds/420m) sock yarn you wish to use, however I would suggest a semi solid or solid yarn as anything with too much variation and you will loose the pattern.


32 stitches to 48 rows using 2.25mm over 4"/10cm in stocking stitch, worked in the round.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • womens medium approx 8.5" around widest part of foot unstretched


  • 2.25mm Circular Needles / US1
  • 459yds/420m 4ply Sock Yarn

400 meters of Fingering weight
